Budding young artists will appreciate this fun set of six paint brushes in a variety of sizes and shapesincluding flat, round, and angledthat will help them explore various painting techniques. The brush handles are brightly colored, made of transparent plastic, and are triangular shaped for easy handling and control. These brushes smoothly apply paints of all types, from swooshing wide stokes to fine chiseled lines. I was amazed at the quality of the bristles and how well they held their shapes. These brushes are pleasing to the eye, the pocket book, and are a joy to use!
